Travel Cafe with Fine Art. Explore your possibilities.Travel Café is an Office of Student Involvement (OSI) annual event for students, faculty and staff inspired to use photography as a medium to capture the world around them. OSI events enhance your campus involvement and college experience. ‘Explore Your Possibilities’ is the theme for Travel Café 2014 and will encompass much more than this event has ever before. Travel Café 2014 will highlight our very own Fine Art Department on campus and the numerous possibilities this department has to offer. This Fine Art open house will engage attendees with a letterpress workshop, a lecture from a visiting artist, and artwork created by Fine Art students. Attendees will vote for their favorite submitted photograph and admire postcards created and mailed to the university by students specifically for this event. Refreshments and good company will be provided throughout the event.

Photograph submissions are the foundation of Travel Café and the 2014 photographs should represent travel and exploration. Students, faculty and staff can submit one photograph relating to their interaction with traveling and exploring the world around them. Attendees and our guest artists will vote for their favorite photograph and the winners will receive a framed print of their photo the day of the event.

To ensure print quality, photographs should be high-resolution i.e. 300 dpi.
